Our Accessibility Action Plan will be lodged with the Australian Human Rights Commission to demonstrate our commitment to positive change and increase the overall engagement, representation and meaningful employment of people with disability at the Victorian Public Sector Commission.
We are committed to monitoring and reviewing our access and inclusion activities and report on progress to ensure accountability. Biannually the Accessibility Action Plan Working Group will review actions from the Plan and report on progress in a status report presented to the Disability Champion. Marketing will use these reports to summarise progress and publish in VPSC’s annual report.
In addition, we are committing to joining the Disability Employment Community of Practice established under Getting to Work to learn from and share experiences with other government departments.
